It's funny and ironic actually. Sony is suing people for "circumventing" the PS3 and Microsoft and Google are challenging people (and going to pay them or give some kind of reward) to "hack" their product. (Google's offering up twenty thousand for someone to hack Chrome and Microsoft offered a phone and tshirt for hacking Windows phone).
I'm trying to find some sort of document stating SCEA advertised use of OtherOS on the PS3 (so if anyone can help me out with this it would be great), because a class action lawsuit against SCEA is the alternative to this garbage!
I would love to see how they explain false advertisement within the DMCA!
Edit: Since the PS3 is considered a computer I'm curious if a class action lawsuit can be made against Sony for causing some people to not be able to use their PS3 after upgrading their harddrive due to the release of Firmware 3.56. I would think it is possible since SCEA would have to issue either a fix, replacement and/or apology on an error on their behalf.
Where's some true law buffs out there that read up on things like this? I can't be the only one.
FU sony. I don't give a crap what you do. Just back off.
Back to the 80s –
Hackers just need to go underground these days.
...and the petition is going to do what? Show that people ONLY have a voice/opinion? Money talks and Bulls*** walks. A petition isn't even a legal binding contract, it serves no purpose in cases where a major corporation is suing people.

If sony wants this much control over us why not just gives us the console free and then they can dictate what we do on it. When I pay even 1 penny for something that now belongs to me...I would love for them to put this problem in front of an actual jury and tell those people that anything they buy from sony isn't technically theres and that at any time sony can enforce it's rule over how you use your tv, console, mp3 player and otherwise and let's see how sony's market share lowers.
i bought 2 ps3's, at 300+tax each...
i'm not gonna let sony tell me what i can or cannot do with them.
if they want that right then they shouldn't sell them, just rent them out.
don't see microsoft complaining about me spiking my 360 like a football for rroding.
i bought it therefore it is for me to say what i will do with it. sony co. can just sit and spin and leave us all alone. maybe they should spend some of that money making a system a little more difficult to hack.lol
srry, little peeved.
"FIGHT THE POWER"
Achilles: Funny thing is, most people won't even be able to hack their ps3's seeing how most people on this planet are brain-dead.
Very true. Sony can kiss my ass, telling what I should or should not do with my PS3, which I PAID MONEY FOR. That is like if I buy a desktop PC, and if I want to add a video card, RAM, and a new power supply(modifying the stock PC), I'm gonna do it because:
1) I can
2) I ****ing paid for it.
I'm not ****ing up PSN with pussy ass COD online hacks (because the average idiot 10-15 year old "thinks it's cool"), I play my already owned games offline, unless there is a game update or add-ons to get. If I want to play a game online, I would buy the game or rent it from Gamefly. Sony can't admit they ****ed up, so they take out their butt hurt anger and GO NAZI on some hackers that they have, on at least 80% of their "targets", no jurisdiction to pursue legal action. All this is for a last ditch effort to point the finger at somebody because they can't admit to their own mistakes.
For all the money they are spending on lawyers, they could be putting in to PS4 and its features and make it affordable. Instead now when the PS4 comes out it will cost a arm and a leg because Sony wanted to "make a statement" with the PS3, which is not the highest selling console. The Wii has doubled what the PS3 has sold and has been hacked for awhile now. I love my PS3, but come on Sony.
It wont work.Plus they are just generating more and more bad publicity
